performance: Swiss balls and medicine balls.
Both methods of training can replicate specific sports movements, or create a
platform ideally suited to train stabilizing muscles to improve agility,
mobility, and balance. Strength Ball
Training is the only book to show athletes and fitness enthusiasts how to
use Swiss ball and medicine ball exercises to develop greater strength and
stability for muscle definition and sports performance. It presents strength
exercises that target each of the major muscle groups, and enhance
stabilization and flexibility.
